You’ve been hurt in a car accident. You’re in immense pain, your expenses are racking up, and if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering what to do and where to turn. The experts at O’Dea Law Firm are here to help.
Legally speaking, if another driver’s negligence was the direct cause of your accident, then they are responsible for the cost of:
- your lost wages
- medical bills
- accident-related expenses
- pain and suffering costs
- auto repair costs
- the cost of personal effects and items that were damaged in the car
- and more!
As your personal injury lawyer, we make it our top priority to provide top-tier service for our clients. We don’t just help you win your case: but we work diligently to ensure that your case pursues all the damages that you’re owed by law for your pain and property loss.
Helping You Prove Negligence
One of the major ways we assist our clients is helping to prove the other party’s negligence. Ask yourself, how obvious is it that your injury is someone else’s fault? Usually, the more clear it is that someone else’s negligence led to your injury or accident, the easier it will be to win your case. But car accidents are especially difficult to prove negligence in, and thanks to comparative negligence laws, if a court holds you 10% liable for the accident, then you will only receive 90% of the settlement.
We can help by critically analyzing accident reports, testimony, and other factors, and can even draw in expert testimony and other critical elements to help the court establish when and where negligence has occurred.
Helping You Prove Damages
Before you begin a proceeding, it’s important to remember that there’s no moral or emotional judgement on the other party. It doesn’t matter how angry you might be at them or how many other laws they might have broken: in order to have a case, you must have documented personal injury. And the better the documentation, the better your case.
We will advise you on collecting photos of injuries, and assist you in getting records from medical professionals, police, and other testimony which can help prove the other party’s negligence. And if you’re reading this article wondering what to do if you have been injured, we recommend calling the police. A police report will contain detailed information about the drivers, accident, insurance, and other information which can be invaluable when a case appears before court.
